Yea, so, went ahead and pulled this down. I am going to throw it in the drink to wash it and let it dry.

There is a lot of flash on the parts and I can see some body work needed. I think this one will take a while.

The engine has already been completed, I will get the picture up soon. It is from one of our old members who chose to leave, but, he did finish it like he said he would.

I don't want to lower this one, or anything like that. I want to make it a hot rodder's garage truck/parts runner, but it also has to look cool.

I want this to go into the same diorama as the rat.

Yeah, the cleanup is going to take some time and work, but, I think the end result will be a really cool build.

Now, for what I have done.

First, I cleaned up the body a bit, getting rid of some of those mold lines.

Then I played around with the frame, cleaning it up a bit.

Then I spayed some of the parts black, as a start. Just to get an idea of what I wanted to do.

Not sure how long it will be before I get back to this, as it is going to be oppressively humid here for the next several days and my garage is only semi-conditioned.

I try and never do a picture showing the full bench, that way, no one gets to see how bad it really is.

I thought I had it perfectly organized when I built the bench, then I started puting things away and started building, now, I don't think it will ever be perfect.

The truck got a black coat of paint. I have found that there is a bit of warping going on with it and I am working to get that all taken care of.

Pics will be following soon.

By the way, Kit, can we move this thread to the "trucks" thread? I messed up when I started it.

dunno if i would call it a truck bud

i always thought of panel wagons as oversized cars with more room to paint.

to me a truck has a bed or looks like one of the ole econoline vans lol

Then I'll keep it as a car.

Thanks, Rhodes. I didn't build it, but, I sure am glad for it.
